Radiology at Buckshaw Hospital

What is radiology?

Radiology uses medical imaging to look inside your body to diagnose, treat and monitor illness and injury.

There are two areas of radiology:

  • Diagnostic radiology – a range of imaging procedures produce images of the inside of your body and are carefully interpreted by a diagnostic radiologist to diagnose disease and injury.
  • Interventional radiology - uses real-time imaging techniques, such as X-rays and ultrasound, to guide biopsy samples to help diagnose cancer, inflammation, and infection; and to guide medical treatment including balloon angioplasty, cancer treatment, placing feeding tubes, gallstone treatment, uterine fibroid embolisation, and to treat collapsed spinal bones.

There are several different imaging exams. Some of the most common include X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, CT scan, and PET scan.
